I’ve been cooking and drinking and eating up a ton lately. With the start of my new bootcamp, I’ve had a veracious appetite, and to fuel my body with good food, and so I don’t fall prey to bad crap, I’ve continued to try new recipes and drink concoctions. I’m trying to cut back on coffee and wine just a bit, so I’ve started making tea lattes and venturing into new drink territory. I said I was trying to cut back on wine, not alcohol. Here’s what I’ve whipped up lately.this cucumber jalapeno margarita recipe as a base, but it was weak sauce and way too sour. The jalapeno flavor was barely noticeable too, so I added a whole jalapeno cut lenghtwise, and let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes. I obviously added more tequila too, and a splash of soda would have set it off something fierce. But with the added tequila and extra jalapeno it was pretty spectacular. frother by Keurig and love it.
Also, I’ve had quite a few questions about the meat I’m getting from Primal Pastures. You place an order online and then choose your pick up spot based off of your location. Obviously this is for Southern California residents only, but if you’re interested in finding similar type farms who are raising pastured meat in your area, check out Eat Wild.

My Writing Elsewhere!
Been writing up a storm in September and about food topics I’m grown to be really passionate about. I would appreciate it and love for you to read and share if you feel so inclined. To be forthcoming, I have monthly page view goals to meet each month on my Gwyneth Made Me Do It column, so every little extra bit helps. Now, off of the hard sell and onto the topics!
Confused by all those food labels on meat and eggs and poultry these days? I was, and was really disappointed to learn that cage free eggs are just a marketing ploy really to get us to feel okay with spending more money on eggs that aren’t nutritionally better or from happy chickens. Read all about labels in this post (I discuss grass fed/grass finished and all the other labels popping up all over these days).them all in here in this post. this post. nursing style tips in this post.
Thank you for all your support and patience as I continue to figure out how to juggle these extra writing assignments. I truly appreciate it.
Now off to get baby, he’s up from his nap! Have a great day!
